What can I say, a great film!
13 September 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I had the privilege of seeing this film during its completion screening last year, and I must say for a first effort from producer/director David Covarrubias, I am thoroughly impressed. This really felt like a film you would see in the theatres, it had the production value you would expect from a well made indie feature. First off, the location in the woods at Lake Arrowhead was a superb choice to film at, the house itself is uniquely shaped, and it is surrounding by beautiful evergreens. Not only that, the acting was superb. Compliments especially to G. Larry Butler and Scott Blaze, they worked really well together. The music is something that helped the film too, especially during the end credits, where you can listen to the soothing music and think about the story that just transpired. And the zombie makeup was well-done, I loved it when they were in the basement! I won't spoil it, but look out for that scene! I won't say anymore, see it for yourself and you'll see what I mean.
